‘James Bond’ producer Barbara Broccoli said that the team is open to casting a person who identifies as non-binary as the next ‘007’ even though they are only looking for men to play the role. For the unversed, Daniel Craig’s film, ‘No Time to Die’, released in September this year, was his last Bond film. After its release, the question of who will be the next British spy made the headlines.

There are several H-town celebs that have made the list as the frontrunners, including Henry Cavill, Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Christian Bale, Richard Madden, and Regé-Jean Page. Though the producers said that they will begin the hunt for the next Bond in 2022, there are some preferences in their minds.

While speaking with the Girls on Film podcast, ‘James Bond’ producer Barbara Broccoli encountered the question of a gender-bent Bond. Even though she maintained her stance on keeping ‘007’ a male-identifying actor and those new roles should be written for women, Broccoli said that the team is open to a non-binary as Bond when asked if the British Spy could identify as They/Them.

 “Who knows, I think it’s open, you know? We just have to find the right actor,” ‘James Bond’ producer Barbara Broccoli said. Previously she also mentioned that the next Bond, after Daniel Craig, cannot be a woman. As per one report, Barbara explained that she doesn’t think the man with a license to kill should be a woman with a license to kill. She thinks characters should be made for women, and women shouldn’t be inserted into men’s roles.   - Fox News
